My go-to cookbook. Much more helpful than the Joy of Cooking. ( )

Highly recommend for novice or experienced cook.

Cook's Illustrated brings out strong reactions in cooks - it's almost love it or hate it. Theirs is a more scientific rather than artistic approach to food. I find that their methods are excellent but their seasoning often lacks finesse. And to be honest, I'd be happier with more recipes and less input about how they decided to do things a certain way.

I can't always afford the ingredients (let's make our meatloaf with veal!), but every single recipe I've tried from this book turned out perfectly*. The book contains the one "best" recipe for 1,000 foods. They explain the experimental process that resulted in the final recipe, so you can change things around a little if the Cook's Illustrated preference differs from yours. I'm by no means an expert cook, and I found the recipes to be very doable.

In short: absolutely worth the money.

*one time I over-caramelized (read: burnt) the vegetables I was roasting to make ratatouille. This was my fault, not the cookbook's. ( )

This is the best cookbook EVER! The editors of Cook's Illustrated magazine tested numerous different ways to make each recipe and explain why their ingredients, proportions and methods yield the best results. It works. We tried all our old favorites using their methods and it always came out better their way!

It's also like a cooking course in a book - there are illustrations and explanations for everything from boning a chicken to choosing the best meat thermometer.
